Retired military and living near Antietam battlefield. |
I have often complained to FAG regarding memorials turned to crap due to those who have little skill with doing photos. If they post em up as if they were being posted on their own memorials....MAYBE they wouldn't be so crappy. Too often I see MANY of the memorials I created suddenly sprout terrible photos. Examples are memorial #73021427,#73021907,#88159116,#81956750, #80664761 & #87999963. I did go back and put what I felt was a good photo or two on em.
Unfortunately, some people go out & shoot a whole cemetery in an afternoon. Once they post their work....it shows they are out for numbers and the memorial be damned.
If I have added a family member or a good friend, I am happy to transfer memorials. I am not bothered by F.A.G. guidelines in transfers. I am concerned about getting family members "back together." I DO transfer distant relatives since they SHOULD be with family.
I am also happy to transfer memorials of close friends as well as family.
PLEASE DON'T "TRASH UP" MEMORIALS I CREATED WITH POORLY SHOT PHOTOS!
If you are contributing photos to any memorials I have added to Findagrave, please put on good QUALITY photos, not badly cropped or off center ones I have seen WAAAYYYY too often!
If I have photos to upgrade otherwise "SUBSTANDARD" photos on any memorials I will be sure to add them.
REMEMBER, these sites are in memory of someones' ancestors. If you place a photo on a memorial, make it good enough that you would be happy with it on your own.
All men die.........not all men really live.

I am looking for Charles & Flo Liddington. Flo died in 1972. Charlie was alive in 1974. They were my mothers' mother & step-father.
I believe they lived modestly within a half hour of Danville, PA.
Also, I am searching for any info regarding the roster for the 33rdBattalion of the Maryland Militia. An ancestor I am searching for, Thomas Mock, who served with this unit in New Jersey in 1777 under George Washington. He had a wife names Sarah and parents were George & Catherine Mock. They were from "SUPPOSEDLY" living between Sharpsburg and Middletown, Washington County, MD.

I appreciate your transferring all of those Shifler memorials to me! Will be working on adding info and connecting to other family members this week.
But, I have a question. On some of the memorials, you have added a statement about not showing cemetery photos. I saw that after I had added a couple. I will remove them if you want me to, but I am wondering what your reasoning is for not wanting pictures of the tombstones posted.

Birdman, Can you tell me where I can retrieve a astronomy avatar as well that you use with your comments? That is so cool. Thank you in advance.

Thanks much for the headstone photo---it definitely supports the 1925 birth year. Now I'll try to reconcile it with her mother's 1913 birth date.

Re: Find A Grave Memorial #126237153 for William Dodge, Jr.
Do you have any information about his family or relatives? He may fit in my Dodge genealogy.
